Nachos are the perfect post for Munchie Monday for multiple reasons not the least of which is the fact that there was a big game today, and nachos were definitely a predominate food but also you’ll see why later in the week. Yep, I’m a tease. Honestly though nachos are so easy to throw together for any night much less a night of epic football proportions. We won’t even talk about how sad I am Peyton Manning didn’t win the game, but we will discuss how yummy these tasted.
I’ll try not to discuss any of the commercials either. Tha’ts the real reason to watch the game, right? Or are you more into puppy bowl? Who won that this year? I honestly couldn’t change the channel at halftime, because Bruno Mars was just taking it away. That man is a true entertainer. He reminds me of the old school bands I saw as a kid. You know like The Coasters. I’m the only 30 year old who saw them?
After halftime though it was time to check the game and food into high gear. I really thought that Peyton and the Broncos would show up in the second half and really give the Seahawks a beating, but alas not all wishes come true. Sorry to all you Seahawks fans out there for my lack of enthusiasm over your win. It is hard not to cheer for a guy who is as gracious as Peyton Manning. He hand writes on personal stationary letters to people who are retiring, lost a family member, or are just having a hard time for goodness sakes. He’s like the nicest guy in football.
For now I’ll stop bemoaning the loss and present you all with a recipe for the best tasting nachos in the land. I took a poll, and they was voted Best in Orange County.
